More Important Facts to Know about Spousal Support in Colorado Divorce
Fact 5 – Modifications to spousal support in Colorado divorce can be made by officially petitioning the court.
Just because the court issues a ruling regarding spousal support in Colorado divorce does NOT necessarily mean this is the last word in the case. In fact, after the final divorce decree has been issued, either party in the divorce may petition the court to get the amount (or duration) of these payments modified.
Some of the specific reasons to pursue a modification of spousal support can include that:
- One or both parties have lost their jobs.
- One party may have developed some illness or impairment that makes him or her unable to make spousal support payments on an ongoing basis.
- Some of the aspect of either individual’s financial life has changed, necessitating a change to the amount and/or duration of spousal support payments.
Here, it’s also crucial to note that people MUST go through the courts to get spousal support modifications made; in other words, they can’t simply decide that they want to undercut or stop these payments without an official court order (otherwise they can face some potentially serious penalties).
